So I'm Anna, but I also answer to Annie, Smudge, or Spanner, heh! ^-^'
I'm nineteen, and am currently doing a Fine Arts degree at university. I mainly love drawing, and inking, which leads on to me loving to draw Manga, though people on my course find it a little strange for some reason. I love being able to express myself artistically, as I find it really helps me when it comes to emotions. I'm quite an introverted person, and like my own company more than anything, though I make an exception for my boyfriend!
I want to be an art therapist after my first degree, so will have to do a masters in Art Therapy when this course is done, so I'll have a nice long seven years in university, which means... plenty of time for anime, heh!
I absolutely adore music, and have been a singer since I was six. I listen to a range of music, from heavy metal to classical to J-Pop. My favourite bands currently are Daughtry, Alice Nine, Vienna Teng, and Utada Hikaru. My singing inspirations would be Hayley Westenra, Benjamin Burnley, Enya, and Rurutia.
I'm a writer, from prose to poetry. My username comes from the title of one of my own poems, Falsetto Slumber. It means false sleep, which is appropriate to me, as I suffer from mild to moderate Insomnia. I've always loved to read, from Harry Potter to Lord of the Rings, to The Bell Jar. I find that I can lose myself in literature. I found manga when I was about thirteen, reading such manga as Pyshic Academy, and DN Angel. I didn't have a lot of money, so I just read whatever manga I could find in my local library, so it was often low key average stuff that I could find.
I found anime when I was about sixteen, and I absolutely love it! I love the art styles across the board, and love the stories that are told. I'd say my top five animes, in no particular order, would be Neon Genesis: Evangelion (the first anime I ever saw), Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, Elfen Lied, Sword Art Online (the only current anime that I've managed to get utterly engrossed in), and Spirited Away. I'm currently watching SWO, Darker than Black, and Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica, amongst others. I've recently got back into anime, after a while of having a limited bandwidth online, hence no way of being able to watch it.
